What to do in law ? if I want to do?
My Dear Law Aspirant,
Hi Dear Friend,
I am guessing that you must be either in class 12 or doing graduation. Well law is a very vast field today in the entire world because of the scopes and jobs are related with it. A Recent Survey by an International Survey Agency, Law is being the most, highly respectable and cream profession amongst the other professions.
So first of all, if you want to do Law, you should get enrolled in a Law School (National Law Schools only). DO NOT GET ENROLLED IN ANY OF THE PRIVATE/DEEMED UNIVERSITY. Throughout the world Indian National Law Schools Degrees are only recognized so do not even think about doing an LLB from a private or deemed university.
Once you get enrolled, you will be given a 5 years course in advance with the optional subjects which you may choose in your 3rd year or 5th year. So at that point of time you will not be confused which subject to choose.
Remember, Laws/Subjects learnt are not going to help eventually once you come out of the college. So If you have studied lets say Contract as a Subject, you will not be even able to understand a Contract once you come out of the college after reading/studying a subject Called Contract. you must be thinking why??? Well because our education system is such that you learn things/subjects to pass the exams but not to take it further with you after the exam and that is for life time.
So According to me subjects are not that important if you really want to do something in law. What is important is practice, Internships while studying with a lawyer/Law Firm...learning is actually in practices not in books. Law is a process of constant learning new laws....A Lawyer in his life can not say that he has learnt all the laws...he will have to read and understand a new law before going for a hearing in the court because what he learnt in his college is forgotten.
So I suggest not to focus on the subjects at this point of time and focus on the area of law you want to practice like Civil, Criminal, Banking, IPR etc..etc.. and find a good lawyer who is practicing in your are of interest and get the practical learning while studying law in a Law College.
I am sure you have understood what I am trying to say.
